Larry Yazzie Stone Sculpture
Click on image above for more views

This is a wonderful Utah alabaster stone sculpture by the acclaimed Native American sculptor Larry Yazzie. Purchased from the Heard Museum Shop in 1987, the title of this unique carving is 'A Design From Within". The piece is signed 'L. Yazzie' and is dated, with a copyright mark, '87, which would most likely make this a very early work since he graduated from the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe in the mid 1980s. The piece depicts a woman with a beautiful serenity to her features, overlooking a decorated jar, or perhaps a basket, that is atop a design of a corn stalk and two birds in flight. Sitting upon a 1 1/2 inch high wooden base, the piece measures approximately 18 inches tall. The width is approximately 4 inches and the distance from front to back is approximately 9 inches. The first photo shows a small flaw in the stone at the bottom, right side of the swirl opening that doesn't detract from the grace and beauty of the sculpture or image.

"Acclaimed Native American sculptor Larry Yazzie graduated with honors from the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe in the mid-1980s. Prominent people recognized his talent early and opened doors for him. Since then, Yazzie has been a consistent award winner at prestigious art shows, including his many wins at 2013's Santa Fe Indian Market: Best of Classification for Sculpture; Best of Representational Sculpture; 1st Place for Stone Sculpture; and 2nd Place for Cast Metal Sculpture." ...... $4,250.00
